I normally do not post about contemporary homes, but there are exceptions to every rule. In this case I am making an exception because of the Neutra-esc architecture and great collection of mid-century furniture by Jean Prouvé, Poul Kjaerholm and Serge Mouille that adorn this home. This San Mateo County, California house designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson was completed in 2007.
The seating area below the painting features Jean Prouvé pieces, including a couple of Visiteur armchairs, which according to both Wright and Phillips de Pury Auctions were originally designed in 1941-42 for the Salvoy Hospital (a few variations of this chair were created, these appear to be Model 350 chairs produced c. 1948-1952). Also pictured in the seating area is a Serge Mouille lamp, a Prouvé Cité lounge chair and a Free-form table designed by Prouvé and Charlotte Perriand c. 1953-56.

The Cité lounge chair, originally designed for a competition to furnish the student residence halls at the University of Nancy, France, c. 1930, was even used in the Prouvé's own home. Picture is a Vitra reproduction.

The dining area features Prouvé chairs as well; there were a few versions of these chairs produced, but I believe those pictured are early Demountable No. 300 side chairs (a version of this chair is sometimes referred to as the "Caféteria Chair" for its use in the Cafeteria des Arts et Metiers at the Cité Internationale Universitaire in Paris). The dining table pictured in the home is a very rare Prouvé Compas work table.
